In this mini game, the player is presented with a grid; the train is in one corner, the destination in the other. Along the side are pieces of track that have to be placed in a specific order to allow the train to reach its destination. Time is of the essence, as the engineer has a schedule to keep, and one piece of misplaced track means the train will likely go off the track. While it seems simple, each level is more difficult than the next, and the addition of various obstacles to go around (mountains, forests, lakes) make the game more challenging.
